Description: When I first received this piece of wood I
thought, "wow, how the heck am I going to cut this?" It had a lean to
it that was difficult to orient, but after some struggle time in the
saw vice I finally worked it out. The growth rings are crisp, vivid and
quite explosive and the size is enough to give that "wow" factor in the
display case! Collected by Mike Wagner,
